"Gratitude is like breathing in -- letting ourselves be touched by the goodness in others and in our world. Generosity is like breathing out -- sensing our mutual belonging and offering our care."
Dear Friends of Awaken Pittsburgh,
All across our country this week, people will pause to take time and touch in to their gratitude -- breathing in. I am grateful that I have a comfortable home with heat and plumbing. I am grateful that I have a family and friends. I am also grateful that I have the opportunity to serve others through my work with Awaken Pittsburgh. Then we will move into the season of giving -- breathing out.
Noticing all that I have makes me feel into the abundance in my life and inspires my generosity. What do you want to give this year? I want to give the gift of personal peace and healing to those who need it most.
Due to social distancing, we all may be starting new holiday traditions for ourselves. Here are some ideas that may help us share our abundance and move from gratitude to generosity:
- Share the gift of mindfulness by supporting the work of Awaken Pittsburgh and unlock a $5,000 matching gift --by giving on or before December 1. Donate here.
- Give yourself the gift of understanding: Thanksgiving is also Indigenous People's Day. Learn a bit about that history here.
- Support Native Peoples with your gift giving by going here.

HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT OUR WORK?
Our small but mighty operation is made possible through a team of dedicated, part-time staff and a large network of volunteers and supporters like you.
Awaken Pittsburgh, a 501c3 non-profit organization, relies on the generosity of our community to achieve our mission of fostering well-being, empathy, and compassion for all. Your support helps mindfulness practitioners reach individuals across the Greater Pittsburgh Area through evidence-based programs, activities, and events.
Every life changed was made possible with the help of donors—like you–grantors, community partners, and dozens upon dozens of
volunteers. This is a team effort! We hope you will consider supporting our organization today by becoming a monthly donor or by making a gift in an amount that feels meaningful to you.
